Celebrities often make an appearance on
popular comedy show to promote their upcoming films. But in December last year, reports stated that the comedian didn’t want
to share the stage with him. She was promoting her film, Jackpot (2013), at the time. But the equation seems to have changed.
An insider says, “Sunny will be on the show to promote Ragini MMS 2. Producer Ekta Kapoor, too, will accompany her. Ekta has heard a lot about Kapil’s show and has agreed to be part of it, though she doesn’t like to be in the limelight. The channel and Kapil wanted Ekta to make an appearance as they want youth icons on the show, not just Bollywood celebrities.” The duo will shoot for the episode in a day or two.
Last month, Kapil, who was hosting a cricketing event in Dubai, was seen chatting with Sunny and even posed for photos. This raised many eyebrows as he apparently didn’t want to share a platform with her earlier. But, all that seems to be in the past now.
Sources close to Kapil say, “There was some misunderstanding last time. But he is extremely excited at the prospect of having Sunny and Ekta together on the show.”
